Dunlap High School

"The first high school was started in 1893 and consisted of a two year course with very little choice of subjects. After the new building was erected, the four year course was started and the school has since been accredited.

In 1926, a large community high school building was erected, thus taking all of the older students from the grade building and making much more room. The new building is very fine and it is a landmark, which the people of Dunlap can well be proud."

Early History of all of the 1945 schools was compiled and written by John Hayes, Superindendent of School
